139:14……I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made…..Do not
look down on yourself God created you for a purpose

Matthew 21:1-3; Mark 11:1-6. We are speaking on the topic
divine vessel; I want you to know that you are the vessel of God,
unfortunately, some people have been tied down, but they must be loose today in
the name of Jesus….. Some people the enemy have tied them down, so that they
will not be able to do the work of God but today my Father will loose you in
the name of Jesus Christ….. Anything that is divine is God, man can never be
addressed as divine, it is God; everyone has something to offer God on this
earth; and everyone has something to offer humanity on this earth. Service to
humanity is a service to God; whenever God makes things, He makes it well, He
makes it perfect. Genesis 1:4-…..And God saw the light, that it was
good…..Genesis 10, 12, 18, 21, 25, 31……And God saw it was good. Everything the
Lord created was good. And I want you to understand that you are very good. Psalm
139:14……I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made….. You are
wonderfully made, you are fearfully made, you are created so perfect. I want to
tell you that many things can be bought from the market, but you can never be
bought, because there is something inside you that is greater than what is in
this world. Praise the Lord……1 John 4:4……He who is in you is greater than he
who is in the world. So things in the world can never alter or destroy you
because you are bigger, stronger and greater than them; Praise the name of the

You can hurt yourself, when you begin to discredit yourself;
the enemity you can cause for yourself is when you begin to look down on
yourself; when you begin to think that you cannot do it. Samson was a man of
nature like us; with the jaw of a donkey he killed one thousand people; God can
empower you to do the same thing. Elijah was a man of nature like us; he caused
rain not to fall for three and half years; after that he prayed and rain came,
you also can do the same thing. Elisha was a name of nature like us, he
prophesized that scarcity will turn to surplus, and he made scarcity to turn to
surplus within 24 hours; when there was nothing on earth, and heaven answered
his prayers and wonders took place on that day. Even the high priest who said
it was not going to be possible was trampled down; 2 Kings 7:1-end. I want to
say to you, we are like Moses, we are born the same way, and by the power of
God, he divided the red sea to be parted and the children of Israel crossed
over into a dry land; God manifested His power through Moses by stretching out
his hand into the river and the river was parted. Elijah did the same thing in
2 Kings 2:7-10; he parted river Jordan into two we also, can do the same thing.
Whatever is standing as a blockage, whatever is standing as a hindrance,
whatever is standing as a barrier you can destroy it, you can remove it; you
can uproot it, you can destabilized it.

Psalm 24: 7-8….Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted
up you everlasting doors! Some people are behind the gate, and that gate had
shut them up that they will not be able to go forward, they will not be able to
do anything tangible in their lives. I say that hereditary gate; the gate of brass,
the everlasting door will be lifted today in the name of Jesus Christ…..  Stop looking down on yourself, God created
you for a purpose, and you are going to fulfill the purpose in the name of
Jesus…. You are a vessel of God 1 Corinthians 3:9….For we are God’s fellow
workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. 2 Corinthians 5:20…. We
are the ambassadors for Christ….. You are the ambassador for Christ, Christ
dwells in you; you dwell in Christ, Christ reigns in you; you are a vessel of
God; you need to understand that God created you so special Praise the Lord……..
Many events have taken place, many people have died; many people have been
destroyed, but you are not destroyed. You passed the same road others, who
could not get to their point of destination passed, but you passed it and came
back safely; there is something special about you. This is the time to raise
yourself up; to raise your spirit up; you have many things to do on earth; you
are going places; you need to understand that today shall be the end of every
power tying you down in the name of Jesus Christ……

A colt was tied down by the owner because the owner did not
appreciate its value. I know how angry you can be when you are working for
somebody and they do not appreciate your value; I know how angry a mother or a
wife can be if the husband does not appreciate her; and I can see how angry a
man can be if the wife does not appreciate his value. And that was what
happened on that day, a colt was tied down; and that colt was divinely made;
was made to carry Jesus. There were thousands and millions of donkeys at that
time, but there was one specially made; look at yourself and say “I am specially made.”
This colt was specially made for Jesus Christ; God did not allow the owner to
touch it; nobody had ever sat on it; and it was the one to bring the glory of
God to Jerusalem. You are the one to carry the glory of God to the gentiles;
you are the one to carry the glory of the Lord to the communities; you are the
one to carry the glory of the Lord to the nations, to the kings, nobles,
chiefs, ruler, decision makers, and to the voices of the land; somebody say
AMEN….. You are a vessel of God, but you are tied down, I loose you today in
the name of Jesus Christ……

Things that can tie people down when they are ordained to serve God

Pressure of the world: Pressure of this world can tie people down for
instance- O I have to care for my children, my job; I am a career man or woman.
If you are going through some pressure today I loose you in the name of Jesus
Christ….  Just as the colt was loose on
that day, I loose you in the name of Jesus Christ Praise the name of the Lord……

Enemity: Enemity can tied people down, there are some people they have been so
much demoralized because they dwell in the midst of their enemies. Psalm
69:4….. Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head ……
Enemity can make us to loose it; when they hate you here and there, and you
stand to talk some people hiss at you and you decide that you do not want to go
through it anymore because you are in the midst of your enemies.  But Psalm 27:1-6…..The Lord is my light and my
salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom
shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me my enemies and foes to eat
up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an army may encamp against me, I
shall not fear; though war may rise against me in this I will be confident.
Verse 4…. One thing I have desired of the Lord that I will seek; that I may
dwell in the house of the Lord…… Praise the Lord, you will sing a new song
today; you are not looking unto enemity anymore; you are not looking onto the
adversaries, challenges or critics anymore; you are looking unto Jesus….. If
enemity has tied you down, I loose today in the name of Jesus….. I loose you
from every tie, barrier, chain, and shackle in the name of Jesus….. Praise the
name of the Lord….

Hereditary bondage: Some people want to do well but in their family no one has
ever done it; there are some families, some clan has already been cursed that
no one will rise in that family. 1 John 3:8….For this purpose the son of God
was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Curse is one of
the works of the devil and if you are under hereditary curse; if you are under
generational curse; if you are under ancestral curse; today I loose you in the
name of Jesus Christ….. Look at yourself as the vessel that God wants to use,
like the colt that was tied down; look at me as one of the disciples that Jesus
sent to go and loose the colt. He said “go and loose that colt and if any one
ask you why are you loosing it, say ‘ the Lord has need of it’.” If there is
any kingdom that wants to challenge me this morning; if there is any authority
that wants to challenge me this morning; I stand by the authority of God; I
take authority over all forces of darkness; I take authority over every demonic
power; I take authority over every satanic agenda; I take authority over ever
power of darkness; I take authority over witches, wizards familiar spirits,
occultic powers, manmade god, marine spirits, herbalist, and fetish spirit; and
I sentence them to hell in the name of Jesus……… You are set free……..

Financial situation: there are some people, their calling is to finance the kingdom
of God; some people are into charity, to build orphanage home, some people are
into charity to care for the widows; to care for those that are suffering.
There are some of you that your calling is to sponsor the ministry; there are
some orphans or motherless babies that are very talented and wise, but there is
no money to sponsor them, and you are the solution to their life. If money is
tying you down, if the enemies have used money to tie you down so that you will
not fulfill your purpose, I loose you today in the name of Jesus Christ. Haggai
2:8….. The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine, says the Lord of hosts. I
loose you in the name of Jesus….. No more financial dryness, receive it in the
name of Jesus…..Praise the Lord…… Genesis 12:1-3…..Get out of your country,
from your family and from your father’s house to a land that I will show you. I
will make you a great nation; I will bless us….. May God make you a blessing
today in the name of Jesus…. Verse 3… I will bless those who bless you and I
will curse him who curses you….. It means that those who will bless you will be
more than those who will curse you because He said “I will bless those who
bless you and curse him who curses you” it said Him, meaning only one person
will be your enemy, every other person will be your friend. All the families of
the earth shall be blessed in you in the name of Jesus Christ….. For God to
fulfill His words in Genesis 13:2…..Abram was very rich in livestock, in
silver, and in gold. Genesis 24:1….. Abraham was old, well advanced in age; and
the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things. Let somebody receive the key of
blessing today in the name of Jesus…. As a divine vessel, God wants us to be a
vessel of honor unto Him. God does not want a situation where the enemies will
say “God why did you call him.”

Things that will happen the moment you begin to serve God.

Persecution: 2 Timothy 3:12….. Yes and all who desire to live godly in
Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. Apostle Paul was persecuted, Peter was
persecuted; Stephen was stoned to death in Acts 7:55-58. There will be
persecution and you must be ready for it. Persecution cannot kill you, but it
will strengthen you. Some people have been demoralized because of persecution.
Do you know the reason why some people are sitting down on the talent the Lord
had given them? It is because of past experience. Criticism is an ingredient to
evangelism; persecution has made some people decide they do not want to do it
anymore. Today is triumphant day that Jesus entered into Jerusalem and people
persecuted Jesus Christ. John 15:20…..Remember a servant is not greater than
his master. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept
My word, they will keep yours also. They persecuted Jesus Christ; they
crucified Him; this people shouted “Hosanna to the son of David” on that day.
These are the same people that said “crucify him” on that Friday. When there is
persecution, you have to stay focused; Elijah was persecuted, he prayed for the
rain to come down, but the spirit of his servant was not with him; 1 Kings
18:43-46… in verse 41….Tell Ahab there is sound of abundant of rain…. Let me
say this to you, God loves you; He has called you; do not let persecution cool
you off.

The devil attacking you; there will be spiritual attack: That there will be no spiritual
attack is a lie; the devil does not want you to save those you want to save. I
speak disaster to the camp of Satan in the name of Jesus Christ…. I speak
destruction to the camp of the devil in the name of Jesus Christ; you will
never be weary in the name of Jesus… There will be spiritual attack, but you
will overcome it in the name of Jesus Christ…….

Dishonor: God honors you, but people will dishonor you. They dishonor
you because they are jealous of you. If you do not appreciate others, you will
not be appreciated; it is when you appreciate others that God appreciates you. Isaiah
43:4….. Since you are precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have
love you….. God honors you, people may dishonor you; that there will be no
dishonor is a lie. They spat, beat and crucified Jesus Christ; the children of
Israel accused Moses of bringing them out of Egypt to kill them in the
wilderness. There will be dishonor and you have to take it; everyone that does
not want to be dishonored cannot serve God. The moment you begin to serve God,
you become a servant, because you will serve those that are supposed to serve
you. When Jesus Christ broke the bread; he did not say the congregation should
come and take it, He gave it to the disciples to distribute; and only twelve
disciples could distribute to about 30, 000 people. If you want to excel in the
calling of God in your life, you must single yourself out; you must press beyond the crowd.
If you are doing what the crowd is doing, you will be among the crowd. If your
own case is money, use the money more than others are doing. Solomon did more
than his father did; he slaughtered thousands of cows, rams, sheep, goats;
uncountable. The blood was flowing in the face of God as they were slaughtering
them, and God had no choice than to bless him. Do not do what others are doing,
do better. John 4:34….My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to
finish His work. While others are eating He did not eat; while others are
eating, Moses did not eat, he was in 40 days of fasting and prayer; while other
were eating the king’s delicacy, Daniel did not eat it; Daniel 1:8. Daniel 6:3….Daniel
was distinguished above the governors and satraps because an excellent spirit
of God was in him. Matthew 14:25-31…..The disciples were in the boat at night,
and Jesus was walking on the sea. When the disciples saw him, they thought He
was a ghost. They cried out in fear, but Jesus said “be of good cheer! It is I
do not be afraid.”  Peter answered and
said, “Lord if it is You, command me to come to you on the water.” So He said “Come……”
12 disciples were in the boat, only one person jumped out of the boat. If you
want something different in your life jump out of the boat; if you want to
excel above all of your contemporaries jump out of the boat; if you want your
name to be recorded better than others jump out of the boat. When he was
jumping out of the boat, the rest were watching; let others be a spectator, but
you must be a participant. You need to be a participant and not a spectator;
today, jump out of the boat. Peter was the only person after Jesus Christ that
walked on the sea; reason, he jumped out. Is there anything holding you back? Jump
out of it; is there anything that you are looking at and it is making you feel
you cannot do it, jump out. What I greatly feared has come upon me; jump out of
the boat; work, do something extraordinary. Somebody that jumped out of the
boat has made up his mind that if I die, I die; if I perish, I perish; Esther
4:16. That is why he jumped, but did he die? No. did he sink? No. life is a
risk; if you cannot risk it, you cannot have it. Christianity is a risk. Jesus
Christ is real, is the truth, and Him alone is life. There is no life in any
other person Jesus alone is life, He is the way; He alone is the truth; come on
put your hands together for Jesus
Christ…… we know that our life is secured, this is the time to be a vessel of
honor onto God.


Remain Blessed in the Lord
